Nature Party is brought to you in 2011 by Funner Future (A. Campbell Payne and members of the Drew University community). We present, for your listening pleasure, a multidimensional audio release of the premiere of this piece.
Tracks 1-11 were recorded using binaural microphones. Wear headphones for a fully immersive sonic experience. Live channels 1-4 are the direct inputs of the microphones and audience controls of the performance. When they are played back simultaneously on a quadraphonic speaker system, they produce a spatial recreation of the performance. Cycles 1-4 are the original cycles created for the piece. These can also be played back on a quadraphonic system, but are meant to loop asynchronously.
